If you hear someone describing a place like “it is dodgy in there!” He or she is probably from the UK, coz that’s how they paint a picture of an “unsafe or dangerous” place in the US or Canada.
What about if you hear someone saying “she is fit” or “is she fit?”
That’s the other way of saying “she is beautiful” or “is she pretty?”.
